And all this is happening in front of the whole Ukraine. What is for work when I have to, like some kind of Mongolian khan put up tents in the laughter around the world on the road to move to work in the tent and kill a pittance on these roads, which have not been repaired so many decades! then they published a declaration in which more money than it would take only cash, and I'm very tired of all to repair roads and to make European roads in this and still other areas. This does not work. I am very tired of it. "
